And often times these personalities came from humble grounds but they raised to the occasion at the right time to fulfill a noteworthy cause. In order to properly understand one should ponder over questions like what is exactly self improvement, why should it be desired, how should it be done and what are the possible results to expect.
It is indeed very apt to ask why should someone seek for self improvement when there are so many other things to be concerned about. This very question will help you to find the answers yourself.

A better alternative is to fix yourself first, however hard it may be then one can notice how things around them lines up in a way that they have never imagined.
Knowing valid reasons for self improvement puts us on the right path to explore the ways to improve ourselves.

There is no harm in taking help from various resources like internet, books and others.
However, the true victory is possible when someone comes to terms with themselves by understanding them well enough and recognizing the shortcomings as they are and beginning to replace it with counter productive qualities. For example, if laziness is a quality that is keeping you down to reach your full potential, then one needs to first recognize it as what it is and then work on a solution to become industrious.
If a person has come this far the least they would expect is a change and that is exactly what is delivered.
